More information about the book

The Hollywood Reporter Heat Vision blog is reporting that Sony has cast Rooney Mara in the role of Lisbeth Salander in the English-language film adaptation of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson. Mara will star opposite Daniel Craig, who will play Mikael Blomkvist.

Sony co-chairman Amy Pascal recently said that "Every actress in the world wants [the part]. It’s the greatest character for a girl since I-don’t-know-what."

David Fincher is directing the first in what is expected to be a trilogy of films based on the books.

Rooney Mara's previous roles have primarily been in television episodes, though she starred in the 2010 re-imagining of the horror film A Nightmare on Elm Street and will have a role in The Social Network, also directed by Fincher.
